    Christian Group Defends Todd Akin, Accuses Republicans Of ‘Political Gang Rape’





    Missouri congressman Todd Akin has had very few defenders following his controversial remarks about rape, and everyone from the head of the RNC down to Sean Hannity has strongly condemned his remarks, even calling for him to step down. A Christian nonprofit group called American Vision stood by Akin, and called out “several prominent conservatives” for pouncing over Akin’s remarks in a post titled “Legitimate political gang rape.”

    The post, written by Joel McDurmon, American Vision’s Director of Research, argues that while it was expected that “lefists [and] liberals” would get outraged over Akin’s remarks, it was a surprise that conservatives did the same.






    What could have been quickly and easily handled with a consolidated response correctly interpreting Akin’s unfortunate phrase was instead a rare cause of bipartisan hazing.
    It’s an old and reliable political reality: liberals care for even the criminals in their midst, while conservatives shoot their wounded. So, for example, Joe Biden can put all three of his left feet in his mouth twice a week and the media performs damage control (and perhaps leash training as well). The Right can scream and howl but the matter gets buried in no time. And thus, the male-prostitute hiring Barney Franks of this world retire from Congress as alleged civil rights heroes.
    [L]et a conservative utter an awkward phrase, and it’s ready, aim, fire—not only from the leftist media, but from alleged conservatives like Ann Coulter, Scott Brown, the Romney-Ryan campaign, and the RNC itself. “We’re not associated with him!”







    The post goes on to defend Akin’s use of the phrase “legitimate rape” by claiming he was referring to “actual, criminal, forcible rape as opposed to several other conceivable definitions that are not actually ‘rape.’”

    Let's just stick with facts.
